Managers who attempt to interfere with the treatment of players by team doctors should face disciplinary action and sanctions in the future, according to the Football Association's independent board member Heather Rabbatts.
Speaking in the wake of the case of former Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro, who has parted company with the club after being criticised by Jose Mourinho and dropped from first-team duties, Rabbatts said the FA needed to look at all the issues that had been raised.
Kurt Zouma has offered his backing to under pressure Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, saying the Portuguese coach rarely gets an opposition lineup wrong and often predicts how his own team could concede a goal.
The defending Premier League champions have had a disastrous start to the season, picking up just eight points from eight league games to sit fifth from bottom in the table.
French defender Zouma, 20, has featured in seven of those games, usually in place of club captain John Terry.
